  • 30 mins Delicious vegan, spelt Anzac Biscuits plus three ways to replace golden syrup with healthier unrefined sweeteners
  • 1 cup wholemeal spelt flour 1 cup rolled oats ½ cup coconut sugar (or other unrefined sugar) 1 cup desiccated coconut ½ cup coconut oil 2 tablespoons golden syrup substitute (see recipe notes) 1 teaspoon bicarb soda 1 tbsp water Instructions Preheat over to 170C, line and grease two baking trays. Mix the flour, rolled oats, sugar and coconut in a large bowl. Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat and add the golden syrup substitute, water and bicarb soda, . Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the golden syrup mixture, mixing thoroughly. Roll tablespoon amounts of dough into balls and place on prepared trays, flattening slightly with palm of hand. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Notes Golden Syrup Substitutes: 1. Replace the amount of golden syrup required with the same amount of honey. The resulting baked good will have a distinct honey taste. 2. Replace the golden syrup with 1 part honey and 1 part molasses, or 2 parts molasses and 1 part maple syrup. These sweetener combos will be less 'tacky' than using golden syrup or straight honey. 3. Make your own homemade golden syrup substitute: Heat ¼ cup coconut, rapadura or other unrefined sugar in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Sprinkle a teaspoon of water with ½ teaspoon of white wine vinegar vinegar and sprinkle this mixture over sugar. Cook over a low heat and cook 4-5 minutes, without stirring. After 5 minutes, increase to a medium heat and cook for another five minutes unill sugar mixture forms a syrup with a rich caramel color. Wait until the mixture stops bubbling and then stir well and remove the pan from heat. Use the desired amount in any recipe that requires golden syrup. 3.2.1753
